The Perpetuating Agony of Relentless Quest.

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

May your noses always be cold and wet

Can there be any other reason for this monstrous charade? Can there be any other reason that these foul and deluded beasts are permitted to cavort with impunity across the stage of contemporary existence? Can there be any other reason than to test our resolve and try our faith, both in ourselves and whatever it is we have decided to believe in? We know, according to the mathematical conclusions of physicists that there is a divine being. What other conclusions can anyone come to when it is declared that the universe is 'thought born”? If the universe is thought born then there must have been a mind to birth it. How is it that everyone does not come to the same inescapable conclusion? Can there be any other reason than the necessity for the pursuit of self interest? Can there be any other drive than the need to set one's own will against that of the supreme will for no greater purpose than the fulfillment of appetite and transitory ambition?

It seems so incredibly clear to me that that which is hidden is hidden for the purpose of being sought after and that one is discouraged in their search to test their resolve. The degree to which one may be brutalized as a result of their inquiries is specific to each individual, however... if it is less difficult for some than for others at any particular point, you may be certain it was equally difficult at another time. It is the supreme task. It is the ultimate challenge of existence, that one must come up against the lures of the world and possess or acquire the necessary strength to overcome every temptation and obstacle.

Fortunate indeed are they who are born in those times when the light is incarnate in human form. They are in a position to transcend through the power of the one who has overcome the world. It is considerably more difficult to achieve liberation when one has no direct connection to source. Of course, one cannot have existence at all without a connection to the one but recognition and realization are not easy things to gain in a visceral sense. All of us are more or less intellectually aware of the integrity of different concepts but the visceral is an elusive thing. How... how do we gain that unshakable certitude?

I am convinced that some of us are able by inexplicable means to persist and continue against all odds, while others eventually fall away from the task or are sidetracked by attractions we find impossible to overcome. When I was young I had a number of friends with whom I shared a common love for the divine and a hunger for the unseen that drove us with a sustained passion from day to day. Time passed and I watched one friend after another become captured by the mundane. The day came when they could no longer even remember the fantastic things that had happened to us in our quest. I remember asking many times; “Do you remember when this happened?” “Do you remember when that happened?” Some of these events were epic. Sometimes they had a distant memory of what had happened. Sometimes they remembered none of it. I recall their attention jumping off to some immediate pedestrian thing, almost as some kind of reflexive defense against remembering. It made me sad. It still does.

I think of the people I have met since these blogs have been in operation. I remember close associations that implied a continuing and lasting relationship. I noted how quickly they were able to turn on one when their expectations weren't met. To this day... not one of them has relented when they gave into the fear of what might happen but never did. I've watched intimates of these locations, slip away into the night between one day and the next, never to return because they bought into the idea that spiritual reality had to conform to their idea of what is real. Yet... none of us know what is real. We only think we do.

Sometimes fear is the culprit. Sometimes it is ego. Sometimes it is some trial that came and broke their faith and they said to themselves, “doubtless there must be an easier way.” Whatever the case may be, one automatically becomes a target when they are set up, or set themselves up as a spiritual worker. Certain forces are loosed in an individual when they seek interplay with the source of all things. Each of us possesses a unique personality that can be favorably (or otherwise) compared to a stained glass window through which the light of Heaven shines. Except in rare instances, all of us have blockages and dark areas that inhibit the free passage of the light and all of this has to do with our respective levels of spiritual evolution. Whether the light is fully permitted to flow, or only flows to a degree, ones presence and being comes into conflict with traditional religious systems and those who follow them, as well as the dictates of governmental determinism, the state of the culture and a host of possibilities. For most, staying at a level of the highest personal integrity in this matter becomes an onerous task. Ergo... people compromise what they know or intuit to be true in order to maintain the appearance of harmony with the world around them.

I mentioned earlier that as we go, certain archetypal forces are activated in us and work autonomously, according to their native impetus and irrespective of any effort on our part to modify or reign them in. We vibrate. We resonate and... that impacts on the vibrational aura of others. It especially impacts on their subconscious nature and can make people uneasy and reactive without their even being aware of why that is. There are forces greater than what is human in us and they can affect both the lifeforms and environments that surround us. This results in reactionary behavior and also activates the flight mechanism in some. It's one of the reasons that hermits are hermits and the wise are known for keeping to themselves. You don't see them being interviewed on The View or the Today show.

Every kind of test is thrown at one when they seek to emulate, reflect or behave according to the will of the invisible hierarchy, because the will of that hierarchy is diametrically opposite that of the general pedestrian pursuits of the masses. If all the fish in the world are swimming one way, you find that you are swimming in the reverse direction. You find yourself walking in all things contrary to the world. It is no easy state to maintain and most don't. As has always been the case, you have to want it more than anything else.

When you become a vehicle for spiritual transmissions AND... this can happen regardless of your having plenty shortcomings and other drawbacks... when you become such a vehicle then all kinds of things can happen and some of them can be disconcerting for others. Having mentioned something like this in a recent post, one reader stated that both he and his wife are running into this same thing AND I got an email to that effect as well. You see... there is definite similarity in circumstances experienced by those of us who... for whatever the reason... have become conduits for certain energies that are intent on being expressed in these times of upheaval and chaos.

It is very important for the spiritual practitioner to understand that just because unfortunate events might dog their tracks on occasion, this phenomenon does not necessarily mean that we are going the wrong way or that we are bad people. Blessings come in many a disguise and often, at first, seem to be quite the reverse of a blessing. I broke my hip and this led to a serious upheaval in my existence. It didn't seem to be any kind of positive event BUT... since that happened, I have gradually come to notice some definitely positive changes in my being; things that were not there before. The manner in which the dogs here relate to me is dramatically different. People with whom I have had an occasionally difficult passage have changed in their attitude to me. They tell me I have changed. I don't see it but it must be so. Something went out of me when my hip gave way, something besides what got replaced in the physical.

For some time, I have experienced a sustained progression of negative events and extreme blockages in whatever direction I might attempt to go but... all of this has led to very positive conditions at the moment. We see so little in this glass darkly world. We think we know but we don't. We obsess about the world around us and our place in it, along with all the things we want but don't need. The New Testament has very specific things to say about how little we know and about what is expected of us, given our limitations.

Why do people have problems understanding and accepting the presence of the ineffable? They replace the object of their most valuable surrender with the object of their personal interests. This is the kingdom of self interest. On the higher planes there is little or none, or it is the appropriate form of it. Either you are guided or you are proceeding according to your own personal GPS. Every circumstance that comes out of such behavior is a lesson in the process of becoming. It is one more situation designed to wake us up and these situations intensify relative to the degree of our resistance and denial. The conditions of our mortality in concert with the aging process eventually bring us to our knees, one way or the other. It does not have to be like this. We make it like this.

However hard it may be for any of us at the moment, it will not go on forever. It is the intensity of the times combined with the pressing necessity for change that accounts for it. Shifting from one groove to another can be a trying affair. If the groove you have been in has been operating for any significant period of time then the likelihood of slipping from the new groove back into the old groove has a very high probability factor of repeating itself over and over and over again until... UNTIL the new groove is deeper than the old. Eventually the old groove gets filled in. One day it won't be there at all. Of course, one day, neither will we. Where we will be is the big question and finding the answer to that is of far far greater importance than anything else I can think of, given the inevitability of ones movement elsewhere. Preparing for this is also of far far greater importance than anything else one might feel inclined to prepare for. For some reason, it's just not that important to most people. They would know better than I why that is... or not.
